The texture plates can be used with most paper weights but work best with vellum, which produces a color difference in addition to a textural difference. (Please see the third photo for an illustration.) Texture plates can also be used with foils for an elegant addition to crafts.
To use the plates and tool, lay a sheet of paper right side down over the desired pattern and rub the texturizing tool over the paper with a firm and steady pressure. The tool has a swiveling head that allows its steel nubs to press the paper into the pattern's depressions. Work the tool in a circular direction as well as back and forth, to capture the detail of the pattern.
Textured paper can be cut or punched and used in card making, scrapbooking, and other crafts.
Each plate is approximately 5 3/4" X 7". The patterns can be repeated to fill much larger sheets of paper.
This set of of 8 texture plates and the tool are very gently used and in like new condition.
